Indians Have A Conservative Outlook Towards Valentine’s Day – WAT Wednesday

Indians Have A Conservative Outlook Towards Valentine’s Day – WAT Wednesday

Team InsideIIM, asked 1 year ago

Welcome to yet another week of WAT Wednesdays, Valentine’s Day Edition!

Indians Have A Conservative Outlook Towards Valentine’s Day.


Reports of fringe elements such as Bharat Sena and Shakti Sena claiming to ensure that no one celebrates Valentine’s Day in Coimbatore have come out. The Bajrang Dal has put up anti-Valentine’s Day posters in Hyderabad, advising Hindu girls to not fall into the honey-trap of “Love Jihad”.
Lucknow University shut down their college on Valentine’s Day to prevent students from celebrating. Last year, the Hindu Mahasabha claimed to marry off whichever unmarried couple they saw celebrating Valentine’s Day.

Points to remember:
Please bear in mind that there is no right or wrong answer for it. That’s an opinion. However, the reasons for that opinion may be right or wrong.  And that’s what is important – the process of reaching the conclusion rather than the conclusion itself.

This is how it will work:

1) Users can post their essays in the comments section below by logging in through their http://www.insideiim.com User id.

2) You can write your essay on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!

3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.

4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each essay on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.

This exercise may not replace the practice that you may need daily to master WAT but it will definitely help you to shape your line of thought. We will ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually write an essay/WAT after going through this exercise.
